My scrapbook room is my pride and joy! It was a gift to me from my husband when my son graduated from our homeschool. We spent months planning and working out the details. I thrifted and yard saled and recycled. Here’s a shot of the finished product or you can go here to enjoy all the details (and I mean ALL) of the room.
I am a paper-holic. I love paper. Patterned paper, cardstock, glitter paper, 8 1/2×11 or 12×12. Bright colors or pastels. Thus, I needed a storage unit that would meet my need to see the paper I had purchased (or been given or found at yard sales or marked down). I found these top two units at Goodwill for $10 each. They were divided into 6×6 cubbies with a removable shelf, allowing me to make 12×12 slots and a top shelf for misc. I love my paper storage!
I did have someone comment that it would be great to rotate my cubes so that my paper lays flat instead of up and down. That’s a wonderful idea except that these units aren’t cubes and can’t be rotated (and the unit isn’t square). The slats that I removed from the unit in order to make the slots 12×12 can’t be moved around either. I don’t like that my paper bends, but it hasn’t affected my layouts.
How do YOU store your scrapbook paper? Does vertical or horizontal work best for you?
